New Field Farm's Online Market:  Onions and bears, oh my!


Greetings,

The tough weather continues, with lettuce and salad mix suffering the most. The heat causes the lettuce to bolt and the torrential rains either wash out the salad mix seed or prevent seeding in a timely manner. We should have more mix and arugula next week.

The Ailsa Craig onions are sizing up so we can offer some of those, as well as a few Tropeas.

We’re also offering Yellow Finn potatoes which are small to medium at this point.

There’s no limit on the carrots now.

The heat has pushed some crops ahead of schedule, so, for example, the purple peppers are starting to color up already which gives then a different appearance and a sweeter taste. The heat has also slowed the green peppers which don’t like to set fruit when temps get into the nineties.

And now for the good news. We’re seeing more Monarch butterflies than we have in a long time. We always leave milkweed unmowed for them and are seeing them lay their eggs on those plants, as well as seeing the caterpillars on the leaves.

And yesterday a bear appeared at the top of the field and made it’s way into the blueberries. It sat on it’s haunches and started eating and then got up and chose a different spot. When it spotted me it paused and after I said it was welcome to stay it decided instead to amble off into the woods.

It’s been a good year for barn swallows who return to the farm every spring. There were fifteen sitting in a row yesterday on a high cable that crosses from wall to wall in the barn. Their chattering, flying in and out of the barn, and swooping over the field are always a welcome part of the season.

Let’s hope for a change in the weather before the first frost!

Thanks for your orders.

Tim

Manchester Locally Grown:  Reminder: Ordering Closes at 10 pm




Manchester Locally Grown market





We always have a few new farmers, waiting their turn to join our market and offer their wonderful products to all our customers. In order to add more farmers, we feel it would be best to grow our customer base a bit. We want to be able to offer you and your friends some new local farm products.

The farmers and market managers would really appreciate your efforts to help spread the word about our fantastic market. What a great local resource for fresh, local farm products. Please pick up a few business cards to hand out to your friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Advertising is very expensive, and we want to use our slim market funds in a responsible manner.

Good morning!




This is just a friendly reminder to place your order online by 10 pm this evening.

Remember to hit that last “submit” button. I really dislike disappointing a customer who comes to market, only to find no order in their name because they didn’t hit the last button. When your order is placed, you will receive an email confirmation. If for any reason you fail to receive this confirmation, please contact Linda as soon as you realize it’s missing.

Come to our “Meet & Greet” on Thursday to have an opportunity to chat with some of the farmers and other customers. We will be set up from 4:00 till 5:30 pm with photos, extras for sale, and free samples. Please bring a friend with you!

Also please go to our Facebook page & like, comment, and share this week’s post. Facebook isn’t allowing me to post on multiple sites, or post multiple photos. So please help us spread the word. Surveys indicate that word of mouth is the most effective form of advertisement. Please help us advertise our fantastic growing market!

See you on Thursday!


Blessings,
Michael & Linda

Market News

Hello!

It’s watermelon time! They are big and delicious and are ready to feed a party! Or at least a couple of very enthusiastic watermelon eaters! They are at their peak right now, and this is definitely the season to eat them as much as possible!

Watermelons last a long time and can be used for dessert and breakfast as well as juicing, or in salads! Slices can even be grilled!

So get them while you can!

And don’t forget your meat/bread/egg/cheese order! Lots of good stuff in the shop this week.

Including flowers! Not only bouquets but also celosia and cute gomphrena bunches – both long lasting and great for drying.

We’ve also a selection of dried herbs for tea – both are organically grown and recently harvested and dried, so are of top quality and taste. They are delicious hot or cold!

If you haven’t ordered yet, you have until Tuesday evening to place your order!

Thanks for your support, and we will see you on Wednesday!

John and Tally
